MY CARDS: 

For my first two cards, I used the Radiating Hearts Cling Stamp. It's a beautiful stamp that could be used in so many different ways. I white embossed it on the first card and used gold embossing on the second.
 


 
This next one is so fun! The Leprechaun Die Set is adorable!

 
 
And now for a slimline card - yay! Love creating these! The stamp set is adorable and is called, Better Together Slimline Friends. I used Copics to color all these cuties. I also used the hearts stencil from the Simple Duo Stencil Set.


 
Next up is the Sweet Friend Stamp Set. You know I love flowers and this set is beautiful!

 
 
On this last card I used the fabulous, Thank You For Being a Friend Die. I love how large it is! I adhered it to a simple, watercolor background and love how it looks!
 
 
Okay, that's it from me. Thank you so much for stopping by! Don't forget, this is day 1 of a 2-day blog hop, so be sure to stop by Simon's blog again tomorrow!
 
Enjoy the rest of the hop!
